Beth


Well just got back from sitting with Beth while her brother and his partner go out for a night. Overall she is good, I have seen her better though. I made a spaghetti dinner and took it over for the 6 of us. Everyone seem to like it and made several comments about it.

So once everyone left Beth and I sat and watched TV, I fix her a plate for dinner, which she enjoyed. We talked about nothing really important, just hung out and enjoyed each others company.

I think subconsciously avoid people when they are sick. I rubbed her back and hugged her and kissed her on her head. She then made a comment that no one touches her and that it felt really good. I guess I have been around so many sick people all of my life, even if it’s the flu, mono, strep that I just don’t really think about it. I know cancer is not contagious and even if it was I do not think it could change how I am. If anything I have a better immune system because of my “exposures”.

Ok enough of the semi-depressing side of things. Well if I believed in hell this would be the week to know what it’s like. It’s been close to 100 for almost a week and I am glad to be working from home. I really hate heat and would rather see it snow right now.

I bought some stools for my kitchen, I can not decide if they are going to stay or not. I like the stools themselves but they might be a bit tall for the island bar. Speaking of house, I finally finished the core of my premise wiring and am looking forward to this winter so I can get back into the attic and finish my other projects, like ceiling fans etc. I guess I can eventually start on picking out the fans for each room and get the conduit and switches etc over the next few months.

Well I could ramble on about everything in my head but that might get scary. Also it’s almost 1 AM and work will be here before ya know it.

Nite

Well Beth is all moved into her brothers place and she seems a lot happier. No longer does she have to look around her place and think about things that need to be done. She was up in the morning to see her brother off to work and stayed up a while longer watching some TV.

I arrived early to sit/visit with her, she seemed in really good spirits and fairly well rested. I set up her laptop with the docking station, printer and wireless network. I also brought over the computer I built for her in case the company wants their equipment back, so it’s all setup as well. I checked in on work since I was on call and all was quiet. Beth took a nap around 5:30 and woke up about 8:00 pm and had some dinner. She stayed up and talked with Jeff and I and was a few shows with us. She then headed back to bed for the night. I finished a few things for her, documented her nightly meds and told her that I was not going to stay over as planned. Since I work from home it just felt better being at home with the way I have things setup.

I headed out about 9:30 pm and let Jeff know Beths status before I left.

I’ll be going over to her house and cutting the yard and checking on things in general to make sure things are as they should be. I am glad it’s not a 100 degrees around here, though it looks like it’s going to be that again in a few more day, DRATS!!

Nite.
